(By Tom Lohnes) – Do you ever feel like a 707-horsepower Ram Rebel TRX or 770-horsepower Shelby F-150 Super Snake isn’t enough? Well, your local Chevy dealers have you covered with an 800-horsepower Yenko S/C Silverado 1500.
Yes, you can now get an 800-horsepower, 700 lb.-ft of torque, LT5 powered light duty Chevy silverado straight off of the showroom floor. This huge dollar option that is installed by the dealer includes an engine swap, a beefier transmission, differentials, and some Michelin sports tires that all help this hot Chevy get to 60 in 3.7 seconds and up to a top speed of 140 miles per hour.
This option can be selected on any trim of the Silverado 1500 with 4WD, so in theory you could have a regular cab short bed with 800 horsepower, which in my eyes is a spiritual successor to the famed GMC Syclone. My personal trim preference would be a high country 4-door with the standard bed, making it a luxurious sport truck. Which one would you get?
